Experience the unique sensation of fixed wing microlighting
See the world through the eyes of a bird
Take over piloting duties during the flight
A one day flying club membership is included
The microlight provides a flying experience unlike any other and must be tried to be truly understood and fully appreciated. Take to the skies in one of these special flying fixed wing craft and see the world from the eyes of a bird, whilst a fully qualified pilot takes you both for a spin through the clouds. During the flight there's a chance to take charge of the controls of the Ikarus C4 to navigate across the sky under the expert guidance of the pilot and get a real taste for ultra-light aviation. A one day membership to the flying club is included and this session can count towards a microlight Private Pilot's licence, for those flyers who are bitten by the microlighting bug.
Seven days a week all year round, excluding 24, 25 and 26 December.
Maximum weight is 15 stone and minimum age is 16. Minimum height is 4' 6'' and max height is 6' 6''. Under 18's must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who'll be required to sign a disclaimer.
Microlighting is a weather dependent activity and it's essential to call the venue between 9am - 8pm for a weather check. If the flight is cancelled because of the weather, it will be re-booked for an alternative date or time.
Lasts for about 75 minutes, including a 60 minute flight.
